SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A Chico man pleaded guilty Tuesday to burglarizing 10 post offices in counties including - Butte, Glenn, Shasta, Tehama, and Sutter, according to U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott.

According to court documents, between Aug. 23, 2019, and March 1, 2020, Jeremy Elguez, 32, of Chico, burglarized the Butte City Post Office twice, the Glenn Post Office twice, the Vina Post Office, the Bangor Post Office, the Stirling City Post Office, the Meridian Post Office, the Artois Post Office, and the Cassel Post Office.

Items reported stolen during these burglaries included mail, postal money orders, cameras, and a check for $80,000, according to U.S. Attorney Scott. On Aug. 1, 2019, Elguez also attempted to cash a $350,000 check stolen from the mail.

This case is the product of an investigation by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tanya B. Syed is prosecuting the case.

Elguez is scheduled to be sentenced by U.S. District Judge John A. Mendez on Nov. 10. He faces a maximum statutory penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine, according to Scott.

The actual sentence, however, will be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables.
